Category 4 Typhoon Haima Makes Landfall in the Philippines

19 Oct 2016, 7:37 pm

Super Typhoon Haima hit the northeast Philippines on Wednesday, bringing gusts of 195-mph, just days after Typhoon Sarika killed three people in the Pacific island nation.

Evacuations were ordered on the main island of Luzon and several flights were canceled due to the storm, officials said. Philippine authorities have also warned against sea travel, adding that Haima’s winds could cause “very heavy damage” to structures and could lead to the “complete roof failure on many residences and industrial buildings.” Haima is forecast to head toward China’s coast after passing through the Philippines.
